Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in Swedish in Sweden by Wahlstrom & Widstrand, a division of the Bonnier Group, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2017."
Summary, etc.: "Out of the frozen depths of a forest in Omberg, Sweden, a woman stumbles onto the road. Her arms are covered with scratches, her feet are bare, and she has no memory of what has happened. Local police identify her as psychological profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schoen who, together with her partner, had been helping them investigate a cold case of a young woman's murder. Hanne begins to recover, but cannot recall anything about where her partner is, or what their investigation had uncovered before her disappearance. Police have only one lead: a young woman in a sequin dress who was spotted walking down the road the night Hanne was found. The young woman doesn't come forward, because she doesn't exist: Jake Olsson, a local teenager, had been out walking in his mother's dress and sister's makeup, his secret shame and thrill. Terrified of discovery, Jake hid when the car appeared and watched Hanne get into it, realizing too late that she left a diary behind. As Jake reads Hanne's notebook, he realizes it contains the key to a major breakthrough in the case. But turning in the diary would mean admitting the truth about who he is. When another murder victim is found in the woods, Jake realizes Hanne herself is in danger, and his only choice is to find and warn her so together they can stop him before he kills again"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Investigating a cold case reveals old horrors and spawns new ones in the Swedish town of Omberg. In 2009, teenager Malin Brundin finds the remains of a young girl, who is never identified. Eight years later, with the statute of limitations on murder lifted in Sweden, newly commissioned police officer Malin is assigned to the case because she knows the area, working with characters from Grebe's previous novel (The Ice beneath Her, 2016): detective Manfred Olsson, investigator Peter Lindgren, and profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schön. Hanne and Peter are now lovers, worried about her increasing short-term memory loss, and they vanish within days, with Hanne turning up in the forest unable to remember what happened. The search for Peter uncovers instead the body of a woman, newly killed, identified as a Bosnian refugee. All of this occurs in a depressed and dying town that houses shelters for refugees, who are resented by the populace for the state benefits they receive at the same time locals are denied support. This atmospheric mystery is masterfully constructed with alternate first-person chapters by Malin, whose life becomes upended by the case, and a teenager with a secret, who finds Hanne's diary, which may hold the key to everything. Nordic noir at its best. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
